The Quaker Oats recall that came out in December has turned out to be bigger than anyone thought. Quaker Oats has now officially recalled 24 cereals, bars, and snack products because of potential salmonella contamination.

Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause different symptoms, including diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. According to the Centers for Disease Control, symptoms usually appear from six hours to six days after the person has been infected.

New Yorkers are encouraged to check their pantries for any of the products that are part of the recall and throw them away right away. The recall includes foods like chewy and granola bars and different types of cereal.

This will bum out kids both young and old with 9 Cap'n Crunch products on the recall list. This includes Cap'n Crunch All Berries, Cap'n Crunch Cinnamon Crunch, and Cap'n Crunch Sea Berry Crunch.

24 Quaker Oats Products Recalled

These 24 products were sold across the United States including in New York. Not part of the recall are Quaker Oats, Quaker Grits, and Quaker Rice Snacks.

If you have any of the foods that have been recalled, you should contact Quaker Consumer Relations or visit for more information. The company is accepting reimbursement requests for any of the recalled foods.

Why Salmonella Is A Big Deal

Keep this in mind, salmonella doesn't always make food look like it’s spoiled or change the way that it tastes or smells. You could eat spoiled food and not know it, so it’s important to follow the recall instructions.

Most adults who are healthy and get salmonella won't be affected too badly and could show mild symptoms for up to a week. Babies, small kids, the elderly, and people who have weak immune systems have a better chance of getting very sick if they are infected with Salmonella.
